KGF director Prashanth Neel is currently in the process of filming his next, Salaar, that stars Prabhas in the lead role. Salaar will be a high octane action entertainer that will have a pan Indian appeal. We have already seen Prashanth Neel's mettle as a filmmaker through KGF: Chapter 1 and the expectations have now doubled and tripled for his upcoming outing with Prabhas. Salaar features Shruti Haasan as the female lead, while the rest of the cast are yet to be revealed. Earlier today (August 23), the makers released a new poster, introducing the character of Rajamanaar, played by Jagapathi Babu. The talented actor is touted to play one of the villains in the movie.

Talking about the newly released character lool poster, Jagapathi Babu's makeover looks rugged and intense and we see his skin wrinkled. From what we see, it looks like Jagapathi Babu plays an aged character in this film and the poster has now excited the fans. Produced by Vijay Kiragandur under the banner of Hombale Films, Salaar has music composed by Ravi Basrur and cinematography by Bhuvan Gowda, both of whom worked in KGF: Chapter 1 & 2. Salaar will be shot in Telugu and Kannada, while it will also have a dubbed release in Tamil, Hindi, and Malayalam. The film is announced to release on April 14, 2022, but the plan will definitely change as Prashanth Neel's KGF: Chapter 2 is officially announced to hit the screens on the same day.

Apart from Salaar, Jagapathi Babu is also a part of Superstar Rajinikanth's Annaathe and he is expected to play an antagonist in the film. Jagapathi Babu also has movies like Vijay Sethupathi's Laabam and Keerthy Suresh's Good Luck Sakhi lined up for release.
